The gallery also hosts the CAPTIVATED Image Film Presentations, monthly open houses, workshops, private instruction, and private excursions.
The Journeyman Gallery opened in 2005 as a venue that hosted emerging local and international artists’ exhibits, group collaborations, music concerts, cultural events, and yoga. One of Josh’s closest friends, Seth, gave Josh the nickname “Journeyman”, which became the gallery’s name. After four years of cultivating the gallery, the “Journeyman” name lived to be more prophetic than Josh could have envisioned. His growing photographic and travel passions superceded the confines of a business. From 2009– 2011 the gallery existed only as an on-line art gallery . Josh re-established the gallery in 2012, and baptized it the Journeyman Photography Gallery, representing his impressive and expanded photographic portfolio.
About the Artist
Josh Manring, a photographer, explorer, naturalist, and author residing in Naples, Florida, travels the world to capture rich stories through images that reveal the intersecting juxtaposition of humans and nature. His images introduce you to landscapes and cultures few ever experience so closely. Since 1998, Josh has explored over 65 countries, published numerous photographic books, produced the CAPTIVATED Image Film Series, has been awarded membership to the acclaimed Explorers Club, and is the founder and owner of the Journeyman Photography Gallery.
Josh’s formal training in 35mm photography and dark room development dates back over 20 years ago to The Governor’s Academy, the oldest boarding school in the United States. The artistic seed and medium for expression was planted. His respective passion for photography and travel exploration converged on his first journey to Western Europe following graduation from Rollins College, 1998. This trip energized an initial foundation of photography and exploration. However, an inspirational yearlong expedition to South America and Africa, 2003-04, compelled Josh to share his stories. These narratives, conveyed via artistic images, are the purest reflection of his travel experiences.
In 2005, Josh opened the Journeyman Gallery, the catapulting vehicle to selling and promoting his photographic art. Josh relished the opportunity to assist in the creation of many artists’ exhibitions and his own, engaging the community and the challenge to build a business. However, his desire to discover new horizons was stronger than the confines of four walls and a roof. Therefore, Josh spent much of 2009-2012 capturing new images and stories.
Since 2012, Josh has evolved to embrace the privilege of owning a business while incorporating the ability to travel and photograph. His passion calls him to experience and explore at least one new country a year while enjoying time in Florida to deepen his roots and develop his business within the community and abroad.
Through photography, Josh not only shares his own journeys, but also hopes to inspire others to explore their own passions.
